Stay at FS Kuda Huraa
Close to the capital for easy boat transfers, yet secluded enough to appreciate one-on-one time with the sea, the Four Seasons at Kuda Huraa is everything you need it to be. Descend from your terrace straight into the ocean, where you can snorkel till your heart’s content. Or spend the afternoon idle in a hammock, as you doze to the dance of glistening waves.Accessible only by traditional dhoni, lavish treatments at the island spa fill your afternoons. Revived for the evening, you make your way to dinner, where freshly-caught seafood by the shore catches your eye. Yesterday, it was authentic wood-fired pizzas. Tomorrow, you will cook Indian specialties beside the chef. An aperitif at the Sunset Lounge precedes each encounter, for it is here that interactions are most spontaneous and the company is dignified.
Situated along the beautiful Baa Atoll, the resort is a 25-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport. Sister property Landaa Giraavaru is just a short seaplane flight away. Why not extend your stay with a trip to both hotels via the Explorer Cruise?
Styled in the design of a Maldivian village, the waterside estate gives way to 96 bungalows and suites. Most offer al-fresco showers, floor-to-ceiling views and private pools. Abodes come with up to 3-bedrooms. The renovated water villas are a particular treat.
Who is it for
High-quality service and a broad range of accommodation choices make this a good resort for families and couples alike. With a welcome hamper, beach games and junior spa treatments all available, those travelling with kids are in for a wild ride.
